The new Queens League is attracting attention in Mexico and the Liga MX Femenil

Alejandría Godínez, Rayadas’ goalkeeper, was supportive of the Queens League, the new Women’s tournament in Spain that begins at the end of May.

Queens League

The huge success of the Kings League not only in Spain but also in Mexico has made the new Queen League, the women’s version of this new tournament, a hugely enticing project. So much so that at the Rayadas press conference it was a topic of discussion and Alejandría Godínez, goalkeeper of the team, was happy that there are these types of tournaments as they provide more opportunities for women players.

“I think it’s great, I just saw it two days ago, but it’s cool, to be honest. When the Queens League started, I never thought there would be one; it didn’t even cross my mind that later it there was going to be a female version, but it’s amazing”, she said.

“And it’s great that they were able to start this”, Alejandría continued, “I think that the more opportunities there are for women in the world, obviously that’s welcome, so it’s excellent that there will continue to be more opportunities like those”.

Mexico and USA bid for 2027 Women’s World Cup

On another topic, Alejandría applauded the fact that Mexico and the United States have come together to launch themselves to host the 2027 Women’s World Cup. “I’ve read a lot about it, and it would be incredible. I think it’s something that would motivate us, my generation, the fact that we could possibly still be there for a World Cup. But also for the new generations who, if achieved, would have the opportunity to represent Mexico [in Mexico].”

Rayadas aim to recover top spot in the league

In the previous match day Chivas Femenil snatched top spot from Rayadas, something that forces the side not to lose focus and they will seek to get back to winning ways against Tijuana Femenil. “We are the first and the toughest critics of ourselves, the results have not been good, but the work has continued week after week. It has been very intense, it has been very competitive and sometimes the results simply do not come.”

“Right now it’s up to us, but I don’t know, in four weeks we could be having a different conversation, so the perseverance, the determination to play, to win the games is always there. We have the confidence to move forward and we are looking to close the season the best way and we continue with the objective of finishing in first place”, Alejandría pointed out.
